“For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast” (Ephesians 2:8-9).
A young minister asked me the question — “As a pastor, what is the greatest lesson the ministry has taught you about people?” I responded immediately, “People’s lives are broken, and they are desperately in need of grace.” There really was no other answer. Grace is the perfect storm between God’s greatest action and humankind’s greatest need. Make an offering of grace, today, to all those who cross your path. They are longing for it.
